Day 12 Continued Winthrop and Twisp Heading back south from the 30 Mile through Winthrop and Twisp on the way to the fatal Twisp Fire. Winthrop was an 1880s gold rush town. In 1972 they decided to remake themselves to look that way. Three Fingered Jack's is a place to go I'm told. The town burned once before. A flood took out a bridge as well. Twisp is just down the road. Look for a vintage farm truck on poles being used as a billboard. The grocery store in Twisp has a lot of taxidermy mounts throughout the store. Heading west toward the fire scene. I see we are moving water around the neighborhood. I'll get to the fire in the next post, but for now here is an interesting video related to the fire that shows some firefighting and equipment. The Twisp Fire was actually part of a group of fires in the same area called the Okanogan Complex Fire.
